WOW I didn't see that coming in the first episode.

Poor Cary and ouch ... his hand. What a shitty situation he is in. The State's Attorney guys are really pissing me off too. Again poor Cary.

Is it just me or is Chris Noth going grey at a fast rate?

Let me just add that I really hate when the show is preempted because of sports and I end up missing 10 minutes of the show in the middle. Now I have to go back and stream it.

How do you miss it in the middle? They just start late, right? So if you haven't dvr-over-programmed-it, you'd miss the end, right?

Opening was good. Poor Cary.

I taped 'Madam Secretary' , then 'The Good Wife', then ' Madam Secretary' again ... thinking that I would get the full episodes of all of them. The 2nd 'Madam Secretary didn't record because Comcast (in all of it's wisdom) saw that it was already recorded so while I was preempted and 1/2 way through 'The Good Wife' I 'thought' it was recording TGW second half during the recording of the 2nd 'Madam Secretary' recording and it wasn't. So I quickly switched channels and watched the end of TGW live. Does that make sense?

I hate Comcast.

So my daughter is watching TGW and is on Episode 5 of Season 5 and IS SPOILER FREE!!! I plan on being there for her during Episode 15. It's not going to be pretty. She is marathoning them so it could be as soon as tomorrow.

My affiliate switched out the Madam Secretary encore for a CSI rerun, which looked funny, as I'm seeing (at the end of my recording of TGW) this grisly murder scene and thinking 'THIS is the first scene of Madam Secretary?'...

Is Ashley loving TGW?

Oh yeah. She is hating on Alicia right now because she left Will and the firm. Oh boy is she going to be pissed off when Will is killed. She doesn't have a clue. Will is her favorite followed by Cary. This is not going to be pretty when he's killed.

... I think Alicia was RIGHT to leave the firm, though, a bit more than she wasn't... but yes, Will's anger was certainly understandable, too.

Will's exit was quite a thing, and if marathoning and unspoiled, yeah... gonna be a big shock. It's sudden and it's brutal. (I think I was time-zone-spoiled... still surprised, but I saw something I shouldn't have before I started watching...) And while there are maybe a couple bits of once-you-know-you-can-see-it foreshadowing (I think KMI said she thought the prior hour 'set it up' a little, but... not a LOT, I wouldn't say...), I think it's rightfully regarded as a successful 'big surprise', which is extremely rare these days...

Great premiere. I really like that they are tackling the fallout from having Bishop as a client. I know it's 'legally' justified and of course everyone deserves 'representation' and the Bill of rights and all.... but there is clearly a moral, rather than legal component to accepting Bishop's money, and that kind of compartmentalizing is one of the things average people despise about lawyers and bureaucracies, so while I feel bad for Cary, and while they are brilliantly showing the inherent unfairness of a cold 'inefficient' criminal justice system - I also understand why the cops and the DAs office would not blink a bit at Cary's plight.

it will make a difference if it is an outright setup, or if there's something legit on that phone recording Kalinda's GF has. I don't remember if we had some past plot about this?

I wish we knew how far back 'on or around May 25th' was in our timeline, but... I'm pretty sure we're not suffering Fuzzy Memory here... we did not see the incident for which Cary has been arrested.

I think Cary is PROBABLY innocent of the charges, but... Yeah. Certainly, they HAVE flirted with that 'legal vs. moral' side of things in the past. It's not IMPOSSIBLE to think Cary might suggest his client(s) do 'this thing' instead of 'that thing', and if it's something illegal that we're talking about, and it's on tape... that's bad. We're HOPING it's 'the CI is lying', but we can't be sure...

I didn't like the epi at all. It swung from very dire (Cary) to almost slapstick with Lee as well as the girl with no panties....My hsb said "what now are they trying to be a comedy?"....

Regarding Bishop, I believe the war on drugs is a big waste of time, like getting involved in the Middle East. Americans want drugs and if one guy doesn't provide them the next one will. And like getting rid of Saddam, you never know who will take their place and make things worse. So if Bishop goes down, someone will take his place in 5 seconds. There is too much money in it.

I don't recall the 25th or know that we saw anything, but the cops treatment of Cary made me very angry. It is typical, they squeeze anyone, even innocent people to get a bigger fish. And for what? Lke I said, a replacement will be there in a blink. Americans love drugs.

I was pissed at Finn.

Did not like the show at all.
